Key #6: Respect | Keys to Prophetic Parenting

Allah is the source of all mercy upon us, and He decreed that the first touch of mercy we feel is from our parents.

Being undutiful towards our parents is one of the greatest sins in our religion. We all want our children to gain Allah’s pleasure and go to Jannah. It is our responsibility as parents to help them be obedient to us – by showing respect to our own parents and mercy to our children. Sh. Ibrahim Hindy shares 3 steps we can take to help our children learn respect.
